Betty Dodson ran Bodysex workshops for over 25 years. They grew out of the consciousness raising groups feminists started in the 1970's. Women would gather together and talk first person about their personal lives. Betty took it one step further and had women answer two questions: how do you feel about your body & how do you feel about your orgasm.
She called her workshops “physical and sexual consciousness raising” which she later shortened to “Bodysex”. Betty and Carlin filmed a workshop in 2011 and, based upon demand, started running groups again. It became clear that women wanted to run their own workshops following Betty’s model of body pride, sisterhood, and independent orgasm. To date, we’ve certified 45 women to run workshops in 10 countries and 17 states. This book is a manual describing how to run a workshop from beginning to end. Our hope is that Bodysex spreads across the globe so that future generations of women can learn how to love themselves and their bodies
